Changed the locks.
Good knowledge in his work.

Fit new M/P Gearbox to French Door.
Called John early in the morning as French Door would not lock. He was able to get to us within 4 hours, identified the problem and fitted a new gear box. A very reliable, friendly person who I am delighted to recommend. Will definitely call John again if I need a locksmith in the future.

Changing lock.
John was excellent. He did the job and wouldn’t leave without it being perfect, he really is a credit to his trade. I’d recommend Maidstone locksmiths to anyone. 5 stars.

Replace lock on conservatory door.
The lock was replaced and the door position was corrected. Work done by previous locksmith was correctly finished. Excellent work.

Unlock letterbox and change lock.
I found John on Google as a local locksmith. I was not expecting much and only needed my letterbox unlocked and then a new lock fitted. However when John arrived, (carrying quite heavy tools/ equipment- as there is no available parking on site), I was pleasantly surprised. Not only is John a lovely man in general, he is a man with an efficient, trustworthy, hard working, reliable character. If I need a locksmith again, I will definitely be calling John.
Would recommend to anyone in need/considering. Amazing service.

Lock Repair.
We had two sticking locks on our French doors. I found John on the Internet and asked him for his help and advice on the Friday. I later sent him some photos on WhatsApp and he said said he could come over on Saturday afternoon - even though he doesn't normally work weekends. In 90 minutes he had fixed both locks and only charged a very reasonable price. What an excellent craftsman with service second to none. We are most impressed.

Gain Access.
Needed to open a gun cupboard, the keys of which had been stolen by burglars. There was no need to save the cupboard once it had been opened. John and a colleague angle ground down the side of the cupboard very quickly allowing access to it's contents. Thanks guys for a job done in a short time.

Amazing locksmith, removed the old lock on our patio door after the key snapped off in it and replaced it with a new one and with plenty of spare keys, 100% recommended, nice bloke, knows what he's doing and does it brilliantly.

Replace/Repair lock in uPVC rear door.
From phone call to completion in under an hour. The lock on our back door broke so that we were unable to lock the door or even close it firmly. John removed and replaced the broken lock gear box and adjusted the height of the door to reduce the chances of a repeat. Having checked the price of possible replacement parts (only lower quality easily available and nothing available for collection today) , I can also confirm that John's price for the job was very reasonable. I would not hesitate to use John again or recommend him.

Lock Repair.

Repair of front door lock and locking system and additional repair of Yale type lock.
Maidstone Locksmith's John Ayre provided an outstanding service. He was very professional and had excellent knowledge of locks. He assessed the problem very quickly and wasted no time in repairing the lock and fitting new parts which he had with him. He even cleaned up after the job. I would recommend this company very highly as an A star company.

Emergency locksmith due to being locked out.
You never know how valuable a locksmith really is until you lock yourself out (key left on the inside)! We phoned John on a Sunday and he arrived promptly and managed to let us back in using the proper tools rather than us doing an arm injury or damaging the door/lock attempting this ourselves. Very friendly and knowledgable, highly recommended - absolutely worth using a proper locksmith. John also fitted new locks for us when we moved in last year, again excellent service, polite, prompt and fair and reasonable pricing for the jobs requested.
(Checkatrade review ME16)

Lock Repair.
Excellent service, very friendly staff and extremely knowledgeable. The bottom deadbolt snapped on my front door late on a Sunday afternoon.
I rang Maidstone locksmiths to see if they could help. John came round within 10 minutes and had me in my house in a few minutes. He was able to put a temporary lock on the door and ordered the parts required to fix it completely. He arranged to come back two days later. He also fit a new barrel and new door handle as well as realigning the door so it didn't catch on the bottom as it was doing previously.
He did all that for an extremely competitive price. I cannot recommend John enough.

Called number on Checkatrade list, explained problem, told would be with us in 1/2 hour, arrived promptly and gained access, very helpful and courteous, will use again.
(Checkatrade review Tonbridge)

Very helpful.
Requested quote for a job, advised of a free alternative which worked.
(Checkatrade review ME1)

I had just moved into my new property and all the locks needed changing.
WOW! John is lovely! Highly recommended. He visited me to assess what was needed - everything got ordered and he was back two days later.
My back doors were simple - new cylinders, job done! The front door was a pig and needed a lot of TLC to get the locks matching up, but John didn't give up and got it double locking for me, after some perseverance.
My sliding middle door didn't lock at all. John fitted some mushrooms and a new cylinder, but over the next month or so, this door failed to lock! I called John up - he was round and altered it - FREE OF CHARGE! He is great with dogs too :)
(Checkatrade review ME5)
